I'm working on my next art piece right now but could not help but make one more #Valorant #Lore Theory thread in the meantime, this time focusing on Pearl. This is a follow up again on my Odyssey theory thread which you can find here:
What I'm going to discuss here is the rooster motifs we see all over the B side of the map & what it could possibly mean. The best example of these rooster motifs can be seen on the double doors in mid section. small rooster statues as well as floor tiles bearing the sign. ImageImage
The map Pearl is located in Lisbon,Portugal. So let's start by looking into the significance of rooster as a symbol in Portuguese culture. In Portugal, the rooster is a symbol of faith, good luck & justice based on the legend of the "Old rooster of Barcelos" or "Galo de Barcelos" Image
The legend tells a story about a pilgrim traveling through Spain who is accused of stealing silver from a landowner, and is sentenced to death by hanging.
To plead his innocence, he begs the judge to reverse his sentence.
The judge was about to tuck into a roasted cockerel, when the pilgrim vowed that as proof of his innocence the cockerel will stand up on his plate and crow. As the pilgrim was about to be hung, the cockerel miraculously stood up and crowed and the judge stops the sentence.
There are variations in the story, one is where the pilgrim is falsely accused of stealing silver.
The pilgrim stays at a local inn, and it is the greedy owner of the inn who falsely accuses the pilgrim of the crime.
Or in some versions there are two pilgrims, a father and his son. The son is accused, and the father pleads his innocence by calling on the rooster to crow.
Now that we have a general idea of what it symbolizes in the local culture of the map's location, let's go back and take a look around again. A lot of Things are happening on the B side Pearl. One thing that specially can catch your attention is this poster: Image
In that poster we see that Oran McEneff & Ruben Pontes ( the two scientists who were working on the large Radian collider in Fracture) are both on the run. Oran is wanted for entering Omega illegally and conspiring against Alpha & Ruben is a fugitive marked as a dangerous person.
It seems like Oran & Ruben survived Fracture & escaped to Ω earth together.We can see Ruben's house has been sealed off possibly after being investigated by Ω officials. In front of Ruben's house, there is a shop,The Red Reflection. There's again a tiny rooster on the counter. ImageImageImage
I am going to theorize here, that Oran and Ruben on pearl, represent the pilgrims in the Old rooster of Barcelos legend. They are falsely seen as the people who have caused the Fracture incident and are in hiding.
Who is the only person that can actually prove their innocence in this? Our favorite Frenchman. In a fun coincidence the rooster is also the national animal of France. Chamber could potentially be the person to clear their names. will it happen? we shall wait and see.
Interestingly enough there is a little rooster statue also near the Odyssey club: ImageImage
Sorry for the long thread again :D

⌛️New #VALORANT Lore to discuss with patch 8.09 and it is exciting! We got a voice mail and the format for it is amazing, I love the dynamic between Harbor and Astra. Without further ado let's see what we got 🧵: Image
▶️In Patch 8.08 Clove mentioned that Harbor & Astra were headed to Lotus and at the time I was thinking they were visiting Omega, but turns out our dear controllers paid visit to the location that would be where the Alpha Nexus once stood
▶️As a reminder for newer lore friends: The map Lotus we play in the game takes place on Omega Earth; But since Alpha and Omega are mirror earths split apart just after the First Light (~11-12 years before the current events of the game), so the majority of the landmarks that-

Once again I am in the middle of working on an art piece and here with another Valorant #Lore theory thread... This time hopefully smaller than the last one. Speculation inbound 🧵:
I'm guessing the pyramid we see in L'Accord trailer that is holding Brimstone prisoner is actually something Omega Astra used to escape Brim finding out about her. There's going to be a fair bit of speculation and I'll explain it further below. Image
I think Omega Astra actually came to check what happened in the Fracture facility after both Chambers shot the reactor. The reason I think Omega Astra could have come to check it out is what Alpha Astra is telling Brim in this Email: Image

Ok guys I'll get back to posting art soon I promise, but here's another #Valorant lore thread for now which is kind of a follow up on my last thread. This thread revolves around what happened in Fracture and Chamber's role. speculation inbound: Image
My apologies in advance for the long thread
The first impression after watching Chambers causing the explosion is that he is mercilessly just murdering some scientists for an ulterior motive, I am going to disagree with that assumption based on evidence and clues we've been given.

#Valorant Lore Theory: The method Alpha Earth uses to reach Omega earth is not the same method Omega earth uses to get to Alpha. The portals the Omega agents use are a far more advanced tech than the ones Alpha acquire through Chamber getting the blueprints. Look at these pics: ImageImage
Now look at Phoenix coming back from Alpha earth mission on Duality cinematic in a frame by frame manner. A portal opens, Phoenix walks through and the portal closes. ImageImageImageImage
Alpha Valorant Protocol got their hands on inter-dimensional portal blueprint through Chamber getting it from Fracture. I think it is safe to consider the portals Omega Kingdom shared with Alpha Kingdom were very outdated in their own world.
